TeamWalk on Your Terms
Cancer doesn’t go away in a pandemic, and neither does TeamWalk for CancerCare’s commitment to supporting cancer patients in need.
TeamWalk, best known as the largest single-day fundraiser in the Merrimack Valley, will once again be held on Your Terms, Your Turf and Your Time. Any time between May 23 and September 1, 2021, walkers can simply choose when and where they want to walk while following recommended social distancing protocols.
Last year, hundreds of TeamWalk’s loyal supporters gathered their teams together on their terms, and raised more than $363,000 to support cancer patients in need along the way. The funds raised through TeamWalk on Your Terms stayed right in the community — helping patients with wigs, prosthesis, transportation, medications, integrative therapies, and more.
Each spring since 2000, TeamWalk for CancerCare has brought together thousands of Merrimack Valley residents to walk the streets of downtown Lowell to raise money and support local cancer patients. Many of these patients are undergoing treatment at Lowell General Hospital's Cancer Center.
The event has come a long way since the first event, which started at Lowell General Hospital's main campus and had hundreds of walkers, not thousands.
Since its inception in 2000, TeamWalk for CancerCare has raised more than $13 million that has directly helped more than 34,000 patients. TeamWalk funds make a difference by paying for medications, nutritional supplements, wigs, and prostheses, support groups, skilled nursing visits, transportation, mini-grant, and supportive services to patients with all cancer types.
